Project: Culture Kent Research Programme (Dr Karen Thomas and Dr Julie Scott)
Research partner: Visit Kent
Client: Culture Kent, led by Turner Contemporary
In partnership with Visit Kent, the Tourism and Events Research Hub was commissioned by Culture Kent to conduct a two year research programme, to provide a robust evidence base to facilitate the achievement of its key outcomes. Culture Kent was funded by Arts Council England and VisitEngland, as part of the Cultural Destinations Programme. Led by Turner Contemporary, the aims of Culture Kent were to showcase Kent’s cultural assets; extend reach by attracting new audiences; create new strategic relationships and develop the information and knowledge core required to strengthen the Kent cultural tourism offer. The findings of the research and supporting resources produced by the Culture Kent Research Programme can be accessed here.
